Further Information: Born 1981 in Toronto Canada and now lives and works in London. After studying art and art history at the University of Toronto, Carali was awarded her MFA at Slade School of Art UCL and practice-based PhD at Central Saint Martins UAL – where she is currently a tutor and teaches performance drawing. Carali commenced her current “Circle Drawing” series in 2004, She focuses on the durational element and physical process of drawing. Using graphite on paper McCall draws her full arm’s length in a continuous circular motion to the point of complete exhaustion. An important aim in the work is to maintain a constant and continuous visible line that embodies time and energy. While performing, her entire body is noticeably putting effort into the drawing – often causing the paper rip or her knuckles to bleed. Her emotions and personality are etched for prosperity on every work she produces.
